The Science of Whitening

Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic dental procedure that helps to remove stains and discolouration, enhancing the natural brightness of your smile. Understanding the science behind this process can help you make informed decisions about your teeth whitening options.

Active Ingredients

The primary agents used in teeth whitening products are hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide. These chemicals act as bleaching agents that break down into oxygen molecules. These molecules penetrate the porous outer layer of your teeth (enamel) and reach the discoloured molecules in your teeth.

Oxidation Process

Once these oxygen molecules come into contact with the discoloured molecules in your teeth, they initiate a reaction known as oxidation. This reaction breaks the bonds that hold the discoloured molecules together, effectively dispersing them and leaving your teeth whiter.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can teeth whitening be painful?

Some people may find that their teeth become sensitive during or after the treatment. These symptoms are usually temporary and should disappear within a few days of the treatment finishing.

How long will my teeth stay whiter?

The effects of whitening vary from person to person. The effect is less likely to last as long if you smoke, eat, or drink products that can stain your teeth. We advise top-up applications every 3–6 months; this is really easy to do at home.

What products should I avoid to preserve the whiteness of my teeth?

During whitening, we advise avoiding anything that would stain a white shirt (for example, coffee, red wine, tobacco, curry, or tomato-based sauces).

Is an oral hygiene appointment required before whitening?

We advise everyone to have a hygiene appointment before starting whitening. This will remove all stains to help provide you with the best possible outcome.

Do I need to have good oral health before beginning whitening?

Like all cosmetic procedures, good oral health is a prerequisite for starting whitening. Any tooth decay, gum disease, or other oral health-related issues must be resolved in advance.

Do I need to see a dentist before whitening my teeth?

To whiten teeth, you must have a dental health examination before treatment.

Is teeth whitening safe?

Whitening is a safe treatment. However, it is not suitable for pregnant women, mothers who are breastfeeding, or anyone under 18 years of age.

Can I buy teeth whitening products over the counter?

In the UK, effective teeth whitening products must be prescribed by your dentist.
